16-Apr-09: Jihadists for peace

Passover has just ended, and with it two weeks of relative quiet from our rocket-hurling, jihadist neighbours in Gaza. YNet says one of their Qassam missiles was fired in the general direction of Kibbutz Magen in the early evening hours, landing near the border fence and exploding without any serious effect.

The most recent of the thousands of rocket attacks by Gazan Palestinian terrorists occured on April 1, when they fired another three Qassam rockets into Israel. A woman and a teenage girl were injured then as they rushed to shelter after the incoming-missile siren sounded.

This past Monday, in a failed terror attack, a booby-trapped fishing boat exploded near an Israel Navy vessel off the northern Gaza Strip coast. And yesterday, Wednesday, the authorities in Egyp uncovered some 900 kilograms of TNT hidden in 18 sacks near Egypt's border with Gaza.
